Good day everybody, have an awesome day Very Happy

I'm enjoying the last bit of coolness before the heat wave. Thanks Chris, for sending it to us. I suppose you will get our comfortable weather of the last three days now Wink .
I cooked the last hot meal this week, I think. Made farfalle with garlic yogurt, yum.
Might survive the rest of the week on sammies, ice cream, coleslaw and French fries from the take away next door Laughing
So I hope you all stay cooler than I Cool

Hmmm, that dish gives me an idea for a "deconstructed Manti," a lamb dish in little pasta "boats" that you serve with garlic yogurt... I made a stuffed shells version, but turning the filling into more of a sauce and serving it over pasta isn't a bad idea. Thanks!! Laughing

Chris, it actually is our 25 year old student version of the "Manti". Laughing As students we were in need of a quick version, since we loved to eat Manti. So we came up with the idea of using pasta, frying up minced meat and onions, put it on top of the pasta and pour the garlic yogurt over it.

LOL - That's funny. most people never heard of it. I only made it once. Well, once in the traditional version and once in shells. I usually only had it from buying it at the Armenian church bazaars.

I love that garlic-yogurt mix with lamb. I recently played around to come up with an "Armenian Burrito." I found round lavash (like a big flour tortilla), spread the yogurt mix on it, then piled on mashed cooked lentils (in the place of refried beans), shredded cooked lamb, pilaf for the rice and Armenian string cheese. Turned out awesome! Laughing

Sounds delicious. Gotta remember that when I go out to buy lavash again.
I played around with the hot dog theme once. Came up with merguez sausages, iceberg lettuce, garlic yogurt with cucumber and mayonaise mixed with harrissa

That's another funny thing for me ... having grown up eating Harissa, it came as a HUGE surprise to me a few years ago when I first saw reference to it in a magazine, then elsewhere, that it's an African chile paste. For me, it's the national dish of Armenia, and kind of a chicken (or lamb) porridge. Color me surprised AGAIN when I found out it's also the name of an Algernian sweet made out of almonds, sugar, etc. Shocked
